Absolutely. What is the point in having a coach if you're not prepared to listen to them and take their advice? Might as well take your brother and your best mate along for the ride - ooops- David N. is already doing that

Re: The Changing of the Guard

Mastelli has been in this game for a long time and looks like big Dave had enough of the arrangement already which seems a bit strange.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: The Changing of the Guard

Well here is a coaching change in a pair that lasted longer than most- Gonzalez has officially severed the knot with De La Pena. De La Pena will keep busy with his other players and school but it will be interesting to see who Fernando chooses.

Re: The Changing of the Guard

So who's currently without an official coach now? We've just heard about Gonzalez, Murray ditched his, any others?

Re: The Changing of the Guard

Gonzalez is with Stefanki.
Cañas is working with Gaston Etlis
Zabaleta is know with Mariano Hood when he comes back.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: The Changing of the Guard

Bump*
Roddick with Connors (old)
Murray with Gilbert (old)
Gonzalez is with Stafanki ( old news but good news)
And his old coach De La Pena is with Coria ( at least in rumors)

The pendulum continues

Re: The Changing of the Guard

Well it will be interesting since De La Peña and Coria have had some good arguments in the past when Horacio was coaching Chucho. I wonder if Gonzo and Gaudio will send their best wishes?

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".

Of course, sometimes personalities just do clash and they're better apart - though certainly in the case of the close-knit Argentine tennis community you would think they would know that before hiring someone and then changing their mind after a few months But - half the time in my opinion it's just because the players aren't grown up enough to see that most of the fault for bad losses is their own - not their coaches! After all-no matter how hard a coach works he can't be out on the court playing a match can he - if a player messes it up, - it is down to him - so why blame someone else!? A lot of fans are bad in that regard too - if their favourite loses it is easy to bame the poor coach and call for his sacking instead of accepting their player is not quite the little they would like him to be!

Btw - GWH - how could you forget the lovely Gaby Markus in your list of Coria's coaches? Mind you - he only lasted a couple of months so maybe it isn't worth remembering

Why did Markus get canned? I remember him from his playing days. Cute guy.

Did Markus ever really start? I remember when he left Massu in the spring of 2004 word was that Coria had hired him but I don't think he ever actually traveled to a tournie. And of course he is now back with Massu.

I know I thought about that. Gonzo in Madrid I believe And Gaudio in ?Hamburg? Forgive me my memory for tennis is lacking( cuz it isn't as important as other stuff in my life )
BTW I find it rather ironic that he has accepted coaching the player nicknamed "the weasel". I would use that noun and others to describe De La Pena.

Re: The Changing of the Guard

The funny man Lobo is now coaching Moya, this will be an interesting partnership.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

This was when the Weasel had the shoulder problem and Markus who had his career stopped by injury problems told Coria that he shouldn't play in Houston, but the weasel didn't listen, so they parted ways.

It wasn't just Madrid, but in Miami with Gonzo and Horacio was making fun of him and already celebrated that they were in the next round and Coria won. Well Horacio coached Gaudio as well at one point, so that is why Gaston and Gonzo should send best wishes cards.

Re: The Changing of the Guard

It seems the dance of the South American coaches continues.

De la Peña and Coria aren't together any more, then again I am surprised it lasted as long as it did.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".
